Spring Turkey is getting closer!

So is everyone fired up?!? Got some good spots picked out? Did anyone get the second bonus tag?

Not sure when season opens for you guys, but Kansas starts in 10 days and beyond ready. Have more spots to hunt then I'll be able to cover this season!
Good Luck to you Yes

There is a huge tom that struts around near my parents place every morning with his girls. My daughter should get the first crack at them on the youth day April 15th, we have permision to hunt the woodlot in the back.

I can't wait for the season to start! I scouted a new farm I have permission on
and birds were gobbling like mad, also heard a few hens yelping. On the
way home I saw a field with a group of birds that had a couple strutting with
them. I got the 835 patterned and the bow sighted in now it's just a matter of
time!

Mike, did you find a spot for opening day?
I have my daughters spot set up with a blind near a roost area. Hopefully we can get them to fly down our way on Saturday.

She didn't make it out until Monday. She missed a Jake at 30 yds and a little later on we flushed one on the way back to the house. It flew broadside about 30 yds out and after it was out of site I asked her "how come you didn't shoot?" she said "I didn't know I could". She thought the turkey would be standing on the ground!
